I’m was never a big “self-help” book or tv person but there comes a time in your life (for me it’s my mid thirties) where you start to evaluate and reevaluate how and why you do things, work where you work and ask yourself the eternally frustrating question, “Am I happy?” I am blessed to have a great career, a great family yet still I have a feeling that I want more. Am I being greedy? No, never. We all deserve all that the universe has to offer. I believe that there is absolute abundance out there for us all. However, you must work to get it. Yup, thats the hard part. I’m going to be honest and divulge that at times I am tired of doing the damn work! I work so hard but the truth is I need work harder. I need to take myself out of my comfort zone and do things that are challenging.
Today, Bevy Smith held a luncheon where she spoke to a roomful of about 60 talented and beautiful people (majority Black women) about living a life with vision. What brought me there? Bevy herself. I don’t know her personally but when she tweets her desires and “isms” I feel very connected. She has a persona called, “Malibu Bevy” and I swear that is my kindred spirit. I too would love to own a great little home near the water with my beau and live a life of leisure. Fabulous darling! Needless to say that is not my reality but I’m working on making my way there.
